Dubai is served by many major airline companies and UAE's Emirates Airline is one of the best in the world offering high-class services. Dubai has two major airports: Dubai International Airport (DXB) or the new Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC).

The closest airport to the conference venue is Dubai International Airport (DXB). Travel options for both airports can be found below.

Dubai International Airport (DXB)

The easiest travel option from DXB to the hotel is to take a taxi from the airport taxi stand. The approximate fare is AED 70 (USD 19) and the journey should take about 15 minutes.

Alternatively, you may take the Dubai Metro from Terminal 3 (if using Emirates Airlines) or Terminal 1 (if using other airlines). The journey takes around 25 minutes. You should head in the UAE Exchange direction and get off at the Dubai Mall metro station. From the station you can walk along the metro link pedestrian walkway to Dubai Mall; the walk should take about 15 minutes. A one-way metro ticket costs around 8 AED (2 USD). You may also consider purchasing a Nol Metro card if you plan to use the metro during your stay.

You may also rent a car and use the address and GPS location information above to get to the hotel.

Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC)

The easiest option is to take a taxi from the airport taxi stand to the hotel. The estimated cost is AED 100-120 (USD 27-33) and the journey duration is about 40 minutes. Alternatively, you can take a taxi to the Jebel Ali Metro station, from where you can take the metro to Dubai Mall metro station (longer and cheaper journey).
